We are a cricket-based charity, made up of former and current players, whose goal is to ensure that every Australian with a disability can benefit from participating in sport and recreation. Each time an Australian cricketer scores a 'Golden Duck' (or 'Primary') members are 'fined' a $10 tax-deductible donation to our charity.
We partner with local and national charities and groups across Australia to fund their development by providing recreational facilities, equipment and opportunities for people with disabilities.

Disability affects millions of Australians
Approximately 4.4 million Australians (almost 18% of the population) have an intellectual or physical impairment. Our mission is to help them lead more fulfilling and rewarding lives through sport and recreation.
Our aim is to foster a sense of achievement and happiness at taking part
Sport and recreation has been shown to be extremely effective at helping people with disabilities feel like part of a community. The funds we raise help purchase items such as:
- Specialist playground equipment
- Sport-specific wheelchairs
- Equipment for blind cricketers
- Horse-riding arenas for the disabled
- Hydrotherapy pools
- Specialised sailing yachts
How we help the Sargood Foundation
The Primary Club helped fund the purchase of mountain bikes to help people with spinal cord injuries discover the joy and adrenaline rush of mountain biking.
“These bikes, funded by the Primary Club, have proved so popular that Sargood is often unable to accommodate all their clients on these eagerly awaited outings.”
— Susan Johnston, Sargood Foundation
